My long lost Plus2 Has been restored & was seen at Brooklands; Someone posted a picture of the car in it's restored state:

Sorting out pictures in the attic I recently found 3 photos of the car when I sold it to Kent Sports Cars in June 1991, I thought Steve (potleyu18) might be interested in:

The bodyshell was a replacement since both the front & rear were damaged when the car "flew" over a ditch into a field. The chassis sold with the car was a replacement "Anniversary" gold one from Spyder.

Hi
I saw the car at Brooklands, possibly at another event. It looked excellent, and is clearly in safe hands.
Some more pics attached for you to reminisce over!

Thanks for posting those pictures. I have been in contact with the current owner (Steve Woods) & I have been able to send him a copy of the old V5 & several photos, including this one of the car after I flew her:

Hi all, I just spotted this while searching for my past cars.
Great to see RHT900M still looking fine and being enjoyed.
I bought the car in pieces from Kent sports cars over 20 years ago, I realised shortly after that the car had been crashed and the body was a replacement along with the gold spyder chassis which I think was s/n 1005.
I rebuilt the car in my garage in Hillingdon Middx, I have often thought of that car as it was my biggest restoration job at that time. I now part own a classic car restoration service shop and have returned many cars to their former glory but RHT900M will always be special.
If the current owner wants to get in touch I'd love to hear how it's going these days.
Simon.
